I'd be happy to. I watch a movie almost every day (-5dB from Reference) and I have never heard any 'crackling' sounds at all on any of them.

Concurred. To the OP's point: yes, it is definitely worthwhile to use Atmos with only 2 surround speakers. Atmos made perhaps the biggest single difference in sound in my HT ever - maybe other than...

I haven't seen it yet, so I am only speculating, but it is a rare movie that has no positive attributes at all. So when you saw this movie, you found that the cinematography, the editing, the score,...
